Business Journal (12-12-11)

In Business News for Monday, December 12th, 2011, Business Journal's Wendy Strong discusses Marcus Theatres' plan to buy Showtime Cinema in Franklin. The 12-screen independent theater was in receivership, and looking for a buyer. It's located on Loomis Road, just south of Highway 100.

Also, Monday was "Green Monday," which is the term online retailers are using to refer to the second Monday in December. eBay coined the term a few years back, since data shows "Green Monday" is actually when online shopping peaks and retailers rake in the green.
